    Hi,
    I deleted some files I had downloaded from the net, and a prompt came up that Some of the files might now cause my PC to be "unstable". It recommended that I get these files from the windows home edition, service pack 2, disc. In hindsight I think I should have used the restore function, but instead I loaded the whole disc! Everything seems OK apart from when I scroll down a page at anytime it is dead slow. The page seems to refresh every inch as it rolls down. Any advice would be appreciated before I have to call in the local PC fixers!!

    What files did you download from the net, to come up with that message when you deleted them?

    Hello techkid,
    The files I downloaded to the C drive was a "free" film, until it asked me for cash for the password. Would leaving my specs on the thread help?

    Sounds to me like it was just a dud warning, but I'm not certain. Do you have a screenshot of it?

    This scrolling problem, is this with a scroll-wheel mouse?

    Sorry but I don't have a screenshot of it, yes it is a Logitec Marble mouse/trackball.

    Are you using a Logitech wireless keyboard, as well? I came across this at the Logitech website:

    This is the only reason I can think of that your mouse/trackball would act like that at this point.

    I have a smart office , EZ6000 keyboard hard wired. I uninstalled/installed the mouseware, no change. Hope its OK to add another symptom, when booting up, as the screen has changed from black and is going to the blue screen (desktop), the rolling effect is also happening! I appreciate your continued help

    I think I should maybe start again and reload the whole program, do you know if there is a right/clean way of doing this? Thanks again for your help Techkid. When I eventually find the answer I'll be sure and let you know, cheers.

    Check the direct x diagnostic utility, both direct draw and direct 3d, also direct X features you can look at to see if direct draw acceleration is enabled,direct 3d acceleration is enabled,and the agp texture acceleration is enabled, It seems as though you have lost some kind of graphics driver, just a thought!!

    Hi Tech kid and moneyspider 1,
    Abject apologies for the lateness of my reply. My problem was I hadn't reloaded the correct drivers and was using the basic ones in the XP program.
    Sorry again, I will try to do better in the future!!
